“We’ll have more 35-inch tire news later this year,” Morrison said, but declined to specify exactly which models would benefit. It could be an expansion of the 35-inch factory options on the Wrangler, or perhaps the introduction of a package similar to Xtreme Recon for the Gladiator pickup, which borrows many of the Wrangler’s off-road features.
In addition to the Xtreme Recon package, Jeep already announced that the 2021 Wrangler Rubicon will also get an optional 4.88:1 axle ratio later this year, enabling a 100:1 crawl ratio (best in class) when paired with the six-speed manual.
Ford’s new Bronco is offered with 35″ tires on Sasquatch-package vehicles. The Bronco’s maximum crawl ratio, with the seven-speed manual’s crawler gear, is 94.75:1.
